In Hyperphantasia, Kate Ballis employs photography as a conduit into the unseen. Straddling the empirical and the magical, her photographs capture invisible energy, mystifying the mundane and rendering the familiar foreign.
Fascinated by “unseen energy”, the Melbourne artist works with a specially converted full-spectrum mirrorless camera and infrared filters to expose a world that exists just beyond human perception. In this light, shrubs and cacti that usually appear barren spring to life, while ostensibly desolate landscapes become lush, vibrant oases.
Exhibition opens: 6–8pm Thursday 13 February 2020
